SI REN1 <>i s EFFORTS M \I>K TO
RAISE FUND QUOTA BT
Dr. Raymond Fosdick Speaks at Masa
The Fund to date is $1,672,349.59.
This includes the recent $75,000 gift
from the Carnegie Foundation, but
i nuts the $500,000 conditional sum
promised by the General Educational
rd. The Fund as it now stands is
comprised of over 10 000 subscriptions
of which about 9,000 have been made
by Wellesley women.
\> r is enthusiasm dead, despite the
heroic work which has been in prog-
ress since St. Valentine's Day. A
giant mass meeting in New York on
Wednesday, May 31, at which Mr.
Raymond Fosdick was an inspiring
speaker, attested the fact that no
Wellesley woman will falter before
the home stretch.
On all sides there are evidences
that there is more to our loyalty than
a mere spurt. Grace Humphrey, '0o,
has been toiling laboriously over four
enormous books of clippings which
will be exhibited at the college in
June. These will not only show the
activities of the publicity department-,
under the able generalship of Emma
MaeAlarney, but will also demon-
strate what different Wellesley Clubs
and individuals have done and are do-
ing for the Fund.
Among recent items chronicled is
that of $500 cleared by the Washing-
ton Wellesley Club at a benefit per-
formance of the Wellesley films and

The symbolism of the far east, thai.
land of co'or and fantastic design,
thrown into vivid relief by the spirit
of Christianity and Yenching college,
was the theme of 1921's Tree Day
held on Tower Court green on Satur-
day afternoon. June 4. The three un-
dergraduate classes in their light
dresses and the seniors in their caps
and gowns wound down through the
trees and across the green carrying
the trailing laurel chain that has al-
ways marked Wellesley's Tree Day.
All together they sang the Alma
Mater. Constance Whittemore, the
senior president, then advanced in tht
costume of old China, to invite the
guests to join in "Wellesley's loving

elusive, more a thing of the air and
the sun than of the earth, she danced
back and forth with the wind, fling-
ing her orange scarf far behind. Slow-
ly advanced the sinister figure of the
Spirit of Darkness, represtented by
Dorothy Stone, 1922. With quick.
sinuous movements she seemed to be
entangling with invisible cords the
laughing spirit of Light, who, first
gay and valiant, was soon driven,
bound and drooping, from the green.
Then began the triumph of Darkness,
in a dance which, for grace and inter-
pretative power was one of the most
significant in the pageant. Moreover,
her inteipretation of Davkness was
sustained throughout the 'ong period
that she was on the stage. Not once
did her presence seem unnecessary or
obtrusive. Soon the purple spirit ush-
ered in Indolence, Oppression , and
Superstition to join in the reckless
freedom <>f swift triumph. The beau-
t 'ful, slow movements and the per-
fectly executed groupings of these
dancers gave evidence of the skill and
patience with which they had been
trained. A delightful effect was cre-
ated by their formation of a great
semicircle about the temple, and the
offering of bright red pots of incense
as gifts to the Idol.
The group dancing was gathered in-
to a unified whole through an inter-
pretation by Olive Shaw of the spirit
of Oppression found in China during
the dark centuries of ignorance. Her
dancing showed an unusually high de-
gree of technique and originality. This
dance created an epoch in the develop-
ment of Tree Day pageants. The del-
icate, highly technical execution of the
difficult steps involved in the interpre-
tation of the dance showed a skill that
is rarelv seen in aa amateur p>«r£»rm-
Following Darkness, the lords and
ladies of China came slowly up to do
homage to the Chinese Idol, represent-
ed by Helen Cary, 1922. Reverently
the bronze curtain?, of the Chinese
temple were drawn aside and the Idol
was revealed. Then in a weird, slow
dance of strange posture, of long-
drawn poses, sinister in effect, the
Ido' interpreted the grotesque, almost
terrifying religion of paganism.
Then the legend tells us that "the
lure of oriental luxury and the charms
of the swaying idol had left only one
spark of culture," when out of the
distance came the shining figure of
Christianity, impersonated by Eleanor
Walden. 1921. A new reign of enlight-
enment was initiated in the form of

In anticipation of an Outing Club
for the coming year, Elizabeth Par-
has been appointed chairman of
the unorganized sports which would
< -(institute such a club. The Athletic
ociation plans to make this club
pr< minent in an endeavor to stimulate
greater interest and unity in the now
unorganized activities, such as skiing,
hiking, canoeing, and swimming. The
chairman is eager for suggestions as
to organization membership, and the
methods of procedure for this club.
Such suggestions may be sent to Eliz
abeth Parsons before the close of Col
lege or throughout the summer.
Unusual excitement and inter-class
rivalry marked the final competition
in spring sports. The archery contest
was won by the seniors. The juniors
followed, with '24 as third. Esther
phens, 21, made first place, witn
the highest individual score of 124.
The sophomores proved then- superior-
ity in baseball by winning from the
juniors who had previously beaten '21
in a close game. The final basket-
ball game was between '23 and '22.
The juniors were victorious. In hock-
ey, played Thursday. June 2, between
the odd and even classes, '22 and '24

in light colored dresses made an at-

"A CONSUMMATION DEVOUTLY
TO BE WISHED"
While the college was striving in
Tree Day to express pictorially the
lofty character of its achievements, it
was unconsciously calling attention to
one virtue which it does not possess;
namely, punctuality. Doubtless the
outside guests who had attended pre-
vious Wellesley functions (especially
Float Nights) did not expect to wit-
ness an exhibition of this estimable
quality, and would have been rather
surprised than otherwise if the per-
formance had begun at the time foi.
which it was scheduled.
Only irreclaimable optimists expect
college affairs to begin promptly, and
even they must have had their faith
somewhat shattered Saturday after-
noon. We do not mean to imply,
however, that lack of punctuality is a
deficiency peculiar to 1921's Tree Day:
Unfortunately it has branded college
performances from time immemorial.
We would suggest that the tradition
is now a bit out-worn and may be dis-
carded with advantage. College guests
cannot fail to enjoy Commencement
entertainments which begin on time
more than those marked by lengthy
and tiring delays. Surely it is not too
much to ask the college to make an
especial effort during Commencement
week to begin activities on time.

large crowds of outside guests wait-
ing cheerfully for a college perform-
ance to begin? Or is it simply a
complacent disregard of their feelings
Whatever our attitude is, it was
well illustrated on Tree Day.
Several performers assert that they
were all ready to begin at two o'clock.
Tickets announced the hour as three-
thirty. Yet the performance did not
get under way until after four, and
hundreds of guests were sitting out
in the sun, making who-knows-what
remarks. It is said that the delay
was chargeable to the need of censor-
ing make-up and costumes. At any
rate, the classes as a whole were not
lesponsible for it, for they assembled
in force long ere the hour at which
the pageant began.
In the evening, again, the same sto-
ry was repeated, to substantially the
same audience. An interval of at
least forty-five minutes elapsed while
inaudible awards of W's took place.
There was little to divert the crowd
during this period, although, to give
them due credit, they were admirably
That very patience, however, is only
one of many reasons why we should
not tax it. College visitors compose
the most sympathetic and enthusiastic
of audiences. They are slow to dis-
parage, and quick to appreciate any
entertainment. We could not extend
ourselves to better purpose than in
trying to give them our best, and to
give it on time.

four shells were unusually evenly
matched. '24's boat proved the fast-
est. Speed, however, was secondary
to form, and '22 showed herself su-
perior in the latter.
Awarding of Cups and W's
The awarding of cups and presenta-
tion of W's, by Maude Ludington,
president of the Athletic Association,
came after the competition. Janet
Travell was awarded a cup, as the
winner of the spring tournament in
tennis singles, and received a second,
with her sister, Virginia Travell, as a
trophy of the doubles tournament.
The decision of the judges of the
crew competition, Mrs. TJleanor Hun-
ter Brown, Wellesley 1915, Dr. Fos-
ter Kellog, and Mr. Ralph W. Mulli-
gan, was then announced. The juniors
held first place, with 91 points; the
seniors second, with 87; the freshmen
third, with 84; and the sophomores
fourth, with 76.
Elizabeth Congdon, as captain of
the winning crew, received a cup.
Gladys Hathaway., '21, was then pre-
sented with the cup sent by Elizabeth
Shipman, '19, to be given to the best
carswoman on the lake.
W's were given to the following
members of the crew, in recognition
of skill, good discipline, and high
academic standing: from '21, Dorothy
Brainerd, Gladys Hathaway, Jeannette
Luther, Helen Sherman, Mildred
Hesse, Marion Smith; from '22, Lu-
cille Barrett, Elizabeth Beahan, Har-
riet Rathbun. Mildred Durant, Doro-
thy Breingan; from '23, Miriam
Helen Sherman, head of rowing,
was awarded a sweater with an Old
English W. This is the sixth given
this year, and is the highest athletic
honor attainable at Wellesley. It rep-
resents eighty athletic points, high
academic standing, good health, and
The usual formation of the W by
the four boats and the singing of the
three crew songs followed. The fresh-
man boat was christened Kanaloa,
goddess of lightning.
The pageant, which was more elab-
orate than usual, came towards the
end of the evening. This part of the
Float Night program, which is always
the most beautiful and usually the
most enjoyed by outside guests who
are not vitally interested in the crew,
and who become tired by the long
pauses in that part of the program,
deserves a more prominent place in
Float Night than it now has. The
floats this year proved the very beau-
tiful and artistic effects that can be
The pageant represented the dreams
of a little child, who fell asleep after
an afternoon spent in reading won-
drous fairy tales of "shores beyond
the moon, of crystal caves and an-
cient seas." First came Father Nep-
tune, who in turn summoned his wa-
ter-sprites to bring dreams to the lit-
tle girl. The Neptune float, in charge
of Helen Baxter. '23, showed the
stately old monarch sitting on his
After him followed the Owl and the
Pussycat, on their way to sea in a
"beautiful, elegant pea-green boat,"
the Owl strumming calmly on his
mandolin while the very realistic
Pussycat rowed. The little girl's next
dream was of Tom, the sooty chimney
sweep, under the sea with all the wa-
ter creatures surrounding him. Erne-
line Day, '22, as Tom, seemed to be
truly beneath the water, because of
the very clever arrangement of the
float and the excellent manner of
Above the waves and on a desert
island stood Robinson Crusoe's hut,
with Crusoe himself cooking dinne-
over a fire, and his man Friday, at-
tired in yellow,, looking on apprecia-
tively. The two parts were taken re-
spectively by Marjorie Osgood, '22, and
Eleanor Johnson, '23; Margaret Car-
ter, '22, had charge of the float.
Among the most realistic of them
all was that of the tiny Thumbelina
being blown down stream on a leaf,
with her only companion a glow worm.
Margaret Babb, who took the part of
the little maiden only the height of
one's thumb, also had charge of the
Edith Brandt. '23, was in charge of
the float of the moon princess. The sto-
ry goes that the beautiful moon prin-
cess has a sister who lives in a glass
palace under the .sea, and whenever
the moon dips down below the water's
edge, the moon princess is going to
visit her sister.
The float of the Ice sister and the
Fire brother presented another very
effective picture. The Ice sister, sit-
ting among her icicles in the back-
ground, and the Fire brother bending
over his beloved flames suggested the
sad fate of these two widely different
beings who loved each other dearly.
Sinbad, the sailor, cast away in the
val'ey of diamonds, encountered a
huge roc while he was climbing the
cliff to get the largest diamond of all.
He appeared on a float, scaling the
rocks, with the menacing bird above.
Hi'degarde Chjsrchill, as the bea'»
tiful, heartless Lorelei, came gliding
by, combing her hair and singing hei
siren song. To add a touch of real-
ism, there was a bit of shipwreck at
the foot of her cliff, a suggestion of
the many lives she had lured to de-
Still another float was that under
the charge of Katharine Stone, '22. It
was the scene of the little mermaid at
the cave of the sea witch, who was
brewing a potion to turn the maiden's
silver tail into two white feet, so that
she might go up on the earth to her
The last float was a scene from Un-
dine. Olive Ladd as Undine was sup-
posed to be coming forth from the
fountain, made of sparklers, to find
the knight (Isabel Dietrich), her
Nothing more artistic has been seei.
at Wellesley throughout the year than
the Float Night pageant. Congratula-
tions are due to Ethel Halsey, '22,
chairman of the float committee. Har-
riet Cavis also deserves a share in the
praise, for to her belongs the credit
for the beautiful lighting effects
which the float committee has for
years been trying to obtain. Such
success in the floats proves one more
Wellesley tradition very worth while.
The program was closed by the
varsity crew, which rowed out of the
shadows and across Lake Waban.

A great deal of credit for the suc-
cess of Tree Day goes to Helen Cope,
the general chairman, and her com-
mittee; to Olive Shaw, director of
dancing; and to Sibyl Wardwell,
chairman of costumes. The beautiful
arrangement of the temple and the ar-
tistic harmony of the costumes for the
Indolence group deserve especial men-
tion. The Chinese girls, both as ac-
tors and as invaluable assistants in the
production contributed largely to the
success of the pageant. The commit-
tee also wishes to thank the girls who
were kind enough to furnish music at
rehearsals, thus adding immeasurably
to the amount of work that could be
accomplished in a single practice. Tht

that she had not intended to visit
Wellesley, but now wished to see the
college which had produced IVfss Pen-
Many interesting points were made
by other speakers. One of the most
suggestive of the talks was that of
Dr. Alice Hamilton, Government in-
vestigator of industrial poisons and
Associate of Industrial Hygiene at
Harvard. Dr. Hamilton stressed the
fact that research in industrial poisons
such as lead, dusts, and fatigue is an.
excellent profession for women since
they have a greater sense of the valut
cf life than men.
Excellent as the speeches were, one
felt that they had every reason to be
inspired. The picture was not to be
forgotten. An immense auditorium
hung with college banners and filled
with college women; a great stage
banked with lilies of France where
gowned university women of distinc-
tion were seated; frail Madame Curie
trying to express how deeply the
greeting had affected her. It was in
deed a glorious meeting. Next to
President Pendleton's speech and the
singing of the Vassar choir, Madame
Curie seemed most interested in the
undergraduates who filed past her,, de-
positing lilies of France in the bowl
at her side. Introducing this number
of the program, Dean Comstock,
of Smith, said rather whimsically
that colleges were usually represent-
ed by football teams, rarely by their
students, but -for once the order was
being varied. The eagerness with
which Madame Curie watched the se-
lected students of chemistry who sa-
luted her showed that her desire to be
known as a teacher rather than a
chemist was not entirely a publicity
Mme. Curie's indefatigible research
stands as an evidence of the value of
college training for women. But
proper training costs money and Wel-
lesley does not yet possess the re-
quired amount to continue its work.
Pledges must be doubled! President
Pendleton should be able to announce
three million at Commencement.

THE- PARLIAMENT- OF- FOOLS
AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCE-
June 9, L921.
Dear Readers: —
It js a long time since I unseated
to abandon my home in the Natiek
Hot Do? Cart for a kennel in the
Chapel Basement. Yes, my friends,
it is indeed a long time since I came
here imbued with a dogged determina-
tion to pull the P. of F. out of the
mire with my firm canines; I was re-
solved to become a successful wag, to
write witty rebarks and entertaining
doggerel. For a time, true, I was
lauded even by the News Board until
doggone it, something happened.
Whether they became jealous of my
literary achievement in "Mange
Street" or of my high barks at Mid-
years, I shall never discover. Certain
it is, however, that I did in-cur their
entire lack of appreciation. They col-
lahed me, they muzzled my every ef-
fort, they everlastingly found a bone
to pick with me.
I finally succumbed to a nervous
breakdown and my life was very near-
ly cur-tailed in its innocent puppy-
hood. During these beautiful spring
days however, I have become such a
premising convalescent that I was
permitted one day last week to wan-
der around Campus. It happened
that as I was proceeding down the
Lake Path at a dog-trot, a group of
weary girls on the track of a Botany
instructor approached me and inquired
the time of day. I was able to tell
them by a glance at my dog watch.
As they were discussing in loud tones
the probable locality of the dog rose,
dogbane, dogwood, and dog-tooth vio-
let, I eagerly followed them as far as
the Chapel and then — lured in spite of
myself to my old kennel, I entered the
News Office. What was my amaze-
mene to be greeted in husky tones by
all the Editors with the news that my
memory was to be eternally kept
young in a "News charm" to be worn
by the entire staff!
Such is the reward of merit. The
charms will undoubtedly be finished
before the dog days. Be on the look-
out for them, dear readers!
Wienie, vidi, vici!

Leaps from the fern and beats it in
